Historic New YorkMinisink Indians traveling between the Delaware and Hudson Rivers followed the valley which they called Shawangunk ("southward"). Later the name was applied to the mountains to the east. Colonists early in the 18th century used this same level route, which was then called "Old Mine Road" from legends that Dutch prospectors had used it to reach copper or silver deposits in New Jersey. By 1756, it was a highway used by wagons and stagecoaches.
